OTTAWA, October 28, 2003 – The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) is pleased to announce the launch of the NEADS Online Work System (NOWS).
Are you a post-secondary student or recent graduate with a disability looking for work? If your answer is yes, you now have a new job web site at your disposal. Located at <http://www.nows.ca>, the system provides a unique bilingual channel for hiring companies to post employment and internship opportunities specifically for qualified Canadian post-secondary students and graduates with disabilities. Students can upload their resumés, browse and search for employment opportunities, and apply online.
Opportunities include summer, part-time work, internship programs and full-time careers.
For students or recent graduates NOWS is a service that allows you to promote your skills and talents to progressive employers seeking candidates with disabilities for available positions. It provides employers access to the only Canadian searchable database of its kind of post-secondary students and graduates with disabilities looking for work.
If you would like more information on NOWS or wish to register, log on to <http://www.nows.ca> or contact Chris Gaulin toll-free at 1-877-670-1256 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 1986, the National Educational Association of Disabled Students has been Canada’s consumer-based cross-disability organization advocating for full access to post-secondary education and employment opportunities for students and graduates with disabilities.
